Becoming Vegan For Health
I am in the process of becoming vegan for health and I need help!
I am motivated because I do not like the way my body feels. I am getting older, more sluggish, and tired. Becoming vegan has crossed my mind many times before. However, when my doctor suggested it for my health issues, I knew it was time. Now, I need help!
Cooking is one of my passions. But I am from the south and old habits die hard! I have tasted some good vegan food and some stuff that tasted like wood! It feels like I have to rediscover food. I think it will be fun though because I love to cook. The tricky part is going to be introducing all these new foods and recipes to my family. However, everyone has agreed to make an effort. Whatever happens, I will not give up!
I am determined to ensure the health of my family. Wish I would have started our children out vegan from birth. But I am stressing to my family the importance of good health. So far, they seem willing to give it a try. My husband will probably have the biggest struggle. Anyway, I plan to get the kids involved with the cooking and the menus (including their bag lunches for school). I pray it will be more of an enjoyable experience rather than a stressful one. I look forward to our new lives!
Does anyone have any suggestions or ideas to help us succeed? I would love to hear them!
